Fireworks will cap off the Godfrey Family Fun Fest later today at Glazebrook Park. Festivities begin at 5pm and include free activities for kids like bouncers, the cow train, zip line, bungee bounce and face painting. Food and drink will be for sale at the concession stand and with local vendors and then the evening ends with a fireworks display.
Godfrey Park and Recreation Director Kimberly Caughran says they’ve added a few new events this year including a Watermelon Eating Contest at 6pm, and a special salute to veterans about 8:15:
